Changing house is among the most common happenings we can encounter in our days. And despite the fact we change the place we live in averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking situations possible. Just figuring out the organization of transporting all your belongings from one place to another is a very large job and with packing, unpacking and selecting the suitable company to help you with removal, it becomes really huge and quite stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as possible as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your items for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you should remember while packing is that you should create a clear plan that you will stick to during the move. It is good to create a list of every item you need to ship. Such a list will not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to check if all your belongings were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal entails shipping a big amount of various items, including a lot of small items that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – an inventory will help you check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is tagging all the boxes as clearly as you can. One of the most useful methods of tagging cardboards is by category. For example all the kitchen accessories as well as devices should be placed into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as blankets in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll quickly find out how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the transport provider) can be sure which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the shipping car.
Take special care with delicate goods. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric as well as bubble wrap and then label them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the hauler knows that he’ll be shipping delicate load as well as which boxes requires handling with care.
When it comes to furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them prior to the removal and transport all the things inside separately. Any loose things in closets and cabinets can damage your furniture on the road. Additionally it is smart to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open on the road. You may use ordinary Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture into the transporting car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture out of the apartment, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you’ll be able to move them without dismantling (be sure to have at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole method to ship them safely. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to have all the pins as well as screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the elements of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also smart whenever you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever securing smaller items, such as magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and much more, cardboards will be the most efficient choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than y … ou have – but there is a few methods to get some more. Firstly you can acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. But since you’ll probably need quite a few boxes, you can decide upon a more economical method. Go to your local stores and see if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops tend to have a lot of unnecessary cardboards and they are usually happy to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes as well as little items. There is a much bigger possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will be an adequate choice for storing textiles, magazines as well as little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as susceptible to tearing, if you decide to use them for shipping things with hard corners (like books, stationery etc.). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult items to ship are houseplants. It’s always smartest to transport them personally, but if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to transport. One day prior to the transportation water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them absorb what they can before putting the plants in a box (you have to pour off the extra water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the container).
Searching for the right transport provider
Of course, aside from suitably securing your cargo for the removal, it is equally important to select a suitable hauler. What aspects of transportation must you take into consideration while making your decision? Cost of the service, obviously, is important, particularly on longer, routes between countries, however it’s only one of the factors. Whenever shipping all your belongings you have to firstly consider if your things will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible transport providers all the questions you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but also you can read feedback given by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more reliable than feedback given by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite difficult to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is or how long the route is. If you are transporting a lot of fragile things, the cost is probable to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – domestic routes are normally less pricey than moving your load across borders.
